Slowly but surely, Apple's walls are being torn down. While Apple may hate it, this is great for their users.

That's good. Probably the two things I dislike is devices that lock out other stores, and stores that price fix with these "You can't sell cheaper elsewhere" clauses.

"Many on the left refuse to understand what the data is showing: that healthcare is being disrupted by this unmitigated disease spread, that workers are rapidly becoming disabled by unmitigated COVID, that COVID leads to new-onset health problems that can be deadly, and that the vaccine-only strategy failed. Even more concerningly, these elements on the left are generally more privileged, more removed from experiencing the consequences of unmitigated disease, and have more institutional power.

This lack of support for the most marginalized anywhere across the political spectrum has cleared the way for ableists and fascists to continue pressing their โ€œmaximum infectionsโ€ vision for the future of public health. I wrote here about how liberals and leftists have adopted anti-vax and right-wing talking points about public health being a personal choice and illnesses being good for the immune system."

And as we often say, it hurts even more, when the people who are supposed to be your allies, some of them even claim to still be, participate in this #OrganisedAbandonment.

If you're not on the UK electoral register, and wish to vote in the general election on 4th July 2024, you can register online before 23.59 on the 18th of June.

If you're a student living away from home, you can register in both places - but you can only vote in one constituency.

If you have no permanent address, you can still register to vote.

Humans and augmented humans can have null feed IDs. I knew from my shows that it meant different things depending on what polity, station, area, etc., they lived in. Here on Preservation it meant โ€œplease donโ€™t interact with me.โ€ It was perfect.

modern programming is like,

"if you're using bongo.rs to parse http headers, you will need to also install bepis to get buffered read support. but please note that bepis switched to using sasquatch for parallel tokenization as of version 0.0.67, so you will need the bongo-sasquatch extension crate as well."

old-time programming is like,

"i made a typo in this function in 1993. theo de raadt got so angry he punched a wall when he saw it. for ABI compatibility reasons, we shan't fix the typo."

Why are some people proud of things like their nationality or religion when itโ€™s just an accident of birth? I can understand being proud of something youโ€™ve personally accomplished. But being proud of something you had no control over? Itโ€™s like being proud that it rained today.

Seeing adverts for quite an interesting looking UK based small electronic components shop "Enigma Components".

Visited their website :

https://enigma-shop.com/

Needed to ask a question, asked via chat. Recognised the names of the people. Turns out I know them and met them at a mutual friend's BBQ about a decade ago.

What a mad small world.

Check out the website though if you're into this stuff. It's really good. I'll probably be ordering some bits.

Childrenโ€™s book about book bans banned by a Florida school district. A censorship hall of mirrors reflecting M. C. Escherโ€™s โ€œDrawing Hands.โ€ We can relax in the knowledge that this book ban will keep the district's students from finding out about book bans.

As a complete tangent from the quoted post, but it's just reminded me: how do people pronounce "he/him" and "she/her" and so on? I've seen videos of people just completely ignoring the slash and pronouncing it like "sheher" or "theythem", as if they were one word. I tend to avoid saying these things at all, partly because it mostly comes up in text so I can type it instead, but also because I don't know how best to pronounce it. When I do have to say it out loud, or when I'm reading to myself, I normally pronounce the slash as "and", because anything else sets my teeth on edge as being horribly ungrammatical.


i miss when the most complicated thing u could do with ai was make spy tf2 say โ€œmy pronouns are she/herโ€

This morning, I learned that trailblazing computer pioneer and trans woman Lynn Conway has passed away. Her legacy will live on for hundreds of millions of computer users completely unaware of what she did to facilitate the device they're using.

Her legacy will live on for hundreds of thousands of trans people who saw her - and other trans pioneers of her generation - as role models, inspiration and proof that being trans doesn't stop you from being a leader in your field... however hard folks might try to stop you.

As a young trans woman in 2001, it was Lynn's story, along with other trailblazing trans people of her generation, that gave me hope, a reason to fight, and an amazing community of elders whom I could show to family and friends seeking to understand what it meant that I was making a journey of my own (and what it meant for my future)

Some of my friends and followers knew Lynn personally. I would like to express my deepest sympathies to them, and to her family.

Thank you to my friend Ina Fried for the lovely obituary https://www.axios.com/2024/06/12/lynn-conway-pioneer-passes-away

Scientists have revived a plant from the Pleistocene epoch. This plant is 32 thousand years old! Yes, it is the oldest plant ever to be "resurrected" and was grown from 32,000-year-old seeds, beating the previous record by some 30,000 years.
